Terowie

Another fascinating town ... watch the slideshow.




The town of Terowie really captured my interest. It appeared to be a living ghost town, There were lots of shops, some open, but most were closed but not derelict or boarded up. It was as if some day in the 1960s they went to sleep and didn’t wake up again.

What is the story behind this snoozing town? I will tell you tomorrow.

Yes the cat was alive.

  1. Oh what a lovely little town.
    And it has a lubritorium!
    So many beautiful little details.
    (especially love the old gate).
    And I really like the font used for TV sales and service.

  3. Terowie is indeed a very special town - it was where the break of gauge occured - back in the days when all train between the west and the eastern states had to change from the broad gauge line from Adelaide had to cahnge to the narrow guage to travel on to Peterbourogh and the across to the west. And thanks for your gorgeous pictures

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
